Oh, I know boo-hoo poor little Shawn. This is really when I need to pull up my big girl panties and move on but I plain and simply just don't feel like it!
While I was visiting Barking Mad I saw that she is having a stellar give away, that is if you're a Twilight fan, but who isn't! It just so happens that I am a fan, I'm one of the on the fence fans since I do not prefer Edward over Jacob or vice-versa. Lets just say I wouldn't turn either one of them down...for a nice cup of coffee and stimulating conversation that is, sheesh I'm a happily married woman for goodness sakes!
So if you're a Twilight fan or have a daughter that is run on over to Barking Mad and sign yourself up but just don't be too disappointed when I win~ ok pumpkin ;)
The DVD gets releases tomorrow at midnight and my daughter, 6 of her friends and I will all be in line waiting for our copy. We will then be returning home for a night full of my, or um their favorite men, Edward and Jacob. I hope my husband doesn't plan on sleeping because there is really no way I am going to be able to control the screaming that will be coming from me, oh um I mean those girls!
If you haven't read the book DO NOT WATCH the movie. You have absolutely have to take the journey through the pages first!
So onto Betcha Didn't know...
I Betcha Didn't Know that I'm living my dream!
I have been with Babe since 1986, I had just gotten my drivers license when I saw him at a teen-club, yes a teen dance club! Everyone who was anyone was there every Sunday night rocking out to a little AC/DC~ You Shook Me All Night Long!
Anyway, I saw him and had to meet him, even though he was being a pig, at least that hasn't changed ;). I had a mutual friend introduce us and that was it, just an introduction, not a dance offer or a number request, just a hello. Seriously, did he not see just how cute I was?
Our friend kept assuring me he was interested and that he gave him my number but he didn't call. Well being the assertive, take control kind of girl that I am I called him. Imagine my relief when his Mom did a horrible job of covering the phone when she said hey "T" it's a girl, I think it could be the one you've been trying to call all week. Oh sweet relief! It seems our friend liked me and gave him the wrong number, asshat, he almost came in the way of my destiny!
That was September 1986.
In September 1992 we were married~we were just 22 and 23.
Against all odds we've made it. We've had our share of bumps in the road but through it all we have stayed true to one another and ourselves and have fought hard to make a relationship last in a time when it's just too easy to have it dissolved.
So yeah, I'm living my dream. I have a hot husband and two beautiful daughters. I'm blessed beyond measure to be able to stay home with them, to be homeroom mom and serve on the PTA (sore subject right now!). I love my job as a Domestic Goddess and am so very grateful that he works as hard as he does to provide for us so I can live my dream!
Looking back at my senior yearbook under dreams and goals mine says "to marry Babe and have a family". Me living my dream? Oh yes I am people, oh, yes I am!
...and they lived happily ever after!
Happy Thursday Y'all
